I’m thrilled to be sharing my review today as part of the blog tour for The House at Greenacres by Darcie Boleyn. With thanks to Ellie at Canelo for the invite to join the tour and for my copy via Netgalley. First of all though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
When Holly Dryden fled Penhallow Sands nearly a year ago she was determined to put the past – and Rich Turner – behind her. But now an unexpected loss and financial trouble has led her back to the family vineyard and it’s time to tell Rich the truth – he’s a father.
Surrounded by the memories of what they once shared Holly’s anger fades in the glow of Rich’s undeniable love for their son and the way he selflessly steps in to help the vineyard out of trouble. As Holly watches Rich flourish in his new role as father to baby Luke, she realises that though they can’t change the past, the future is still theirs to write…
An uplifting, emotional romance set in Cornwall perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Phillipa Ashley
I’m always so happy when I see a new book from Darcie Boleyn as her books are guaranteed to bring a smile to my face, I couldn’t wait to start reading!
There’s a wonderful mixture of humour and heartfelt moments as the characters deal with life, loss and maybe even second chances. Then add in a gorgeous setting and it all combines to make a wonderful story! I have to admit there were a few giggles when reading this book especially the conversations that Holly had with her gran! I think that we would all love a gran like Holly’s!
The House at Greenacres really was a joy to read and along the way I really hoped that Holly would get her happy ever after. I did on occasion have to shake my head at the characters but this all goes to show how involved I became in the story. There were also some minor characters that brought a lovely feel to the story such as Fran, Bruce and of course Holly’s Gran. Then add in the addition of rescue dogs and my heart definitely melted. Once again Darcie Boleyn has created an uplifting and beautiful story with characters that have flaws and feel realistic. Showing the effects of grief and how raw it can be but also forgiveness, love and support that comes from friends and family.
I’m so glad that this is the beginning of a new series and can’t wait to catch up with everyone at Penhallow Sands and get to know the characters even better!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
